In India the namesake of Saddam Hussein was denied employment more than 40 times
Marine engineer from India Saddam Hussein, the namesake of the executed Iraqi president, had to change his name due to problems with finding a job. In employment, he was denied more than 40 times.
So the man for a long time did not understand what was the reason for the refusal. However, later he was told that in the course of work an employee with that name might have problems at airports when he would fly on business trips.
Although the engineer has already received a passport with the new name of Sajid, his potential employers continue to request certificates of education, in which the old name is still indicated. Saddam asked the Central Council for Secondary Education to help change his name, but officials have not yet taken any action.
Later, Saddam applied to the Supreme Court of Jharkhand, a state in eastern India. The engineer’s case will be considered on May 5, 2017, writes Lenta.ru.
